Sekisui House Australia has just launched a new series within the group’s masterplanned West End precinct, West Village.

Located within the recently launched Allere Collection residences, the Sustainability Series offers a considered and sustainable lifestyle with prices starting from $485,000*. 

The residences include sustainable features such as hardwood or recycled timber benches, exposed joinery, partially exposed ceilings, select environmentally preferred timber-look flooring, and induction cooktops.

The Allere Collection residents have the benefit of double the amenity with two shared rooftop spaces, where incredible pools, spas, off-leash dog space ‘Paw Pavilion’, and sunset views await.

While the residences within the Sustainability Series don’t come with a car space, residents will have access to two Tesla vehicles to accommodate, in partnership with OhmieGo - although who needs a car when West End achieves a walk score of 99/100.

Situated in arguably one of Brisbane’s most forward thinking and sustainable developments, the new release compliments Sekisui’s vision for the already green precinct. 

The Six Star Green Star Community, which is Australia’s highest rating for a master planned precinct, boasts a number of sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, including an onsite grey water treatment plant. The grey water (from laundries and showers) is sourced from two of the precinct’s residential buildings, with the treated water then used to irrigate gardens and for flushing toilets in the retail centre.

Food waste measures are also in place across the site, with up to 85 percent of the food waste from the precinct reused or composted. 

West Village dining outlets are also encouraged to use take away packaging which can be composted or recycled, with the food waste and compostable packaging from West Village stores and dining outlets then collected and processed through the onsite organic waste pulping system. The Pulpmaster Australia system converts organic materials into soils and fertilisers, minimising the use of water and power during the process.

The precinct will also have the ability to generate some of its own energy from the sun, with a 23.5 kW solar power system on the roof of The Eaves building near The Common providing some of the power to light the public spaces, while solar panels on residential buildings provide power to shared building services.

In an urban environment like Brisbane, a “heat island” can be created when materials such as bitumen and concrete absorb and hold the sun’s heat rather than reflect it. To counteract the heat island effect at West Village, around half the site plan is covered with materials which reflect heat, water features or green spaces. Around 100 mature trees and more than 15,000 plants are growing at West Village.

Public bike racks have also been located in several locations at West Village with 1600 set to be available on completion of the project. Four electric vehicle charging stations and a GoGet car share service are located on Basement 1 in the public West Village carpark, which boasts 420 public car parks.

It's flaura and fauna at West Village. 

The Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Vine, species Pararistolochia praevenosa, is grown in several locations at West Village, with the vine being the natural food source for the Richmond Birdwing butterfly, species Ornithoptera richmondia.

The Richmond Birdwing is the largest subtropical Australian butterfly and now unfortunately a vulnerable species. The idea behind growing the Butterfly Vine at West Village is to help increase the population of the butterfly.

West Village is also home to up to seven bee hives, including native stingless bees and European honey bees. The bees help to pollinate the 3,000 native plants at West Village, while playing a role in supporting biodiversity (lots of different types of plants, animals and micro-organisms) in the direct local urban environment.

West Village partners with Brisbane social enterprise group Bee One Third, with their apiarists (bee keepers) utilising traditional beekeeping methods to care for the bee population within the precinct.
